Dan, Jack and special guest Steele Tyler Filipek (@WordsofSteele) rock the room and watch Season 22's Lisa Simpson, This Isn't Your Life, the Montreal Expos of Simpsons episodes, featuring a story cobbled together from several classic-era plots.

S14E17 - Three Gays of the Condo

It's Pride Month and our birthdays so Dan and Jack spend twelve weeks in WEE Studios with special guest Joanna Tillman (UCB!) to watch the Season 14 timewaster "Three Gays of the Condo," an episode that is sort of about homosexuality but also yet another Homer and Marge breakup story. How serious is Homer's alcoholism? Why does Joanna like Simpsons flashbacks? Which boy band lost The X Factor? How do WEE pay our rent? All that plus Puzzle Patrol, #content, and some existential dread.

S20E06 - Homer and Lisa Exchange Cross Words

Nerds and jerks Jack and Dan watch Season 20's "Homer and Lisa Exchange Cross Words", an episode where Homer breaks couples up for money, Lisa becomes a crosswords enthusiast, and the core conflict of the story doesn't start until the final three minutes.

All that plus Lisa the Bouvier, sad sack shit, and a sound effect made by a shoe horn? (12 letters, across).
